    Hello,
    Some of the more useful: refcontrol, useragentswitcher, adblock, adblock updater, noscript, videodownloader, customizegoogle, greasemonkey, cookie button, sage, tab mix plus, del.ici.us, scrapbook, dr.web, some more.
    Some of these have not yet been resurrected, so they are patiently waiting for updates.
    Mrk

    Yes, I have those add ons, and a few more already mentioned , plus
    I didn't see this one mentioned "Random e-mail"
    This add on will give you a temp email address for 6 hours, so you are able to join websites or whatever and not give your real email address, which cuts down on spam...I like this :)

    Hope this helps :)
